Ok, this weight loss and especially exercising is new to me, I really only started on 10/13/10. Well, my heel feels like I have bruised it. It started Wednesday night, it was tender when I got home from work. But Thursday it felt like it was ok. So I went and did my 40 minute walk. I admit I walk fast and far and probably really heavy pounding because of my weight. Well last night, I couldn't walk on that foot. This AM its sore as could be.
I did some googling and realize I did all the things wrong that I possible could have. First, I was walking in old shoes, 2) I was wearing those shoes all day. Apparently, walking shoes only have a few months life span, maybe 6. Less, if you are wearing all day. I need to buy a new pair and ONLY wear them for walking. So that means, bring them and change into them to walk. At my work, (hospital) most of us do wear walking shoes to work since we are walking all day to do our job.
Has anyone had good luck with walking shoes, ie brand and such? It sure would be nice for some suggestions.
We are suppose to get a rain storm this weekend, so I will be at the gym. I think I will hit the stationary bike instead of the treadmill.(To be safe). I will get some new shoes this weekend also.
Enjoy your three day weekend and be safe and true to yourself and your diet. :)
